The Anaphora Literary Press was started as an academic press with the publication of the Pennsylvania Literary Journal (PLJ) in 2009. In the Winter of 2010, Anaphora began accepting book-length submissions. Anaphora has now published over 300 creative and non-fiction books. John Paul Jaramillo’s collection of short stories received an honorable mention for the Latino Literacy Now’s Mariposa Award Best First Fiction Book Award. Professors have taught from a few Anaphora books. Many Anaphora writers have scheduled readings at major bookstores. Anaphora books have also had several articles published about them in regional newspapers. PLJ has featured interviews with best-selling science fiction writers like Larry Niven, and young adult writers like Cinda Williams Chima, James Dashner and Carrie Ryan, as well as interviews with the winners of the Sundance and Brooklyn Film festivals.


Submissions: We are actively seeking single and multiple-author books in fiction (poetry, novels, and short story collections) and non-fiction (academic, legal, business, journals, dissertations and biographies). Email full manuscript (books should be completed prior to submission), biography, summary and marketing plan in a single Word document to director@anaphoraliterary.com. Profits are split 50/50% with writers. Direct author sales of discounted copies, and collaborative marketing are essential to the success of a project. Books are printed POD with Ingram. Anna Faktorovich, PhD, an English professor, is the Director Owner and designs the books.
